Lakers forward (back) to have MRI exam

Posted January 09, 2019

It's well documented that the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled without LeBron James and Rajan Rondo in the lineup.

Ball's numbers have actually decreased in his sophomore season, and he is now posting a line of 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, five assists, and 1.4 steals per game.

Juventus interested in signing ‘great player’ Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal
Juventus are in talks to sign Ramsey on a free transfer in the summer when his contract at the Emirates Stadium expires. Emery is very curious to strengthen Arsenal back-line.

James is now having daily treatments for his injury so hopefully James' reevaluation goes great next week. No other Mavs player had more than 11 points, with Dennis Smith Jr., J.J. Barea and Harrison Barnes all hitting that mark. It's not just them, but until we get healthy again, you gotta play in this league with some passion and fire to win.

LeBron James will miss at least four more games with the Los Angeles Lakers while he recovers from a left groin strain. Since their absence, it's been up to Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram to step up their play and lead the Lakers. We need that all the time from him.

Saudi prosecutors seek death penalty as Khashoggi murder trial opens
The Saudi Public Prosecutor said Turkey has yet to respond to requests to release specific evidence in the case. Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post , was killed October 2 at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

But since then, the Lakers have lost direction, something that was very aptly captured in their last game against the Timberwolves, where in they were playing catch up all through to the final quarter.

Dallas led 67-54 at halftime but had its worst-scoring half of the season with just 30 points after the break - fewer than it scored in either of the first two quarters. For perspective, the Philadelphia 76ers are second-to-last and have a mark four points per 100 possessions better. It's hard to win in this league when you're healthy.

Manchester City's Sane put's pressure on Liverpool: We're right behind you
With this victory, the Man City boss will be desperate for his players to keep the pressure on Liverpool and hope that they crack. "If Mo is on his feet - not in the moment when he jumps over him - we talk differently (about the outcome)".

The Lakers on Friday said James' injury will be re-evaluated in one week. But let's not forget that the squad began 0-3, before going on an extended winning run that put them at 20-14, the capper being a Christmas day blowout win versus the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Luka Doncic is averaging 19.4 points and 4.9 assists while Harrison Barnes is averaging 18.2 points and 4.2 rebounds.
